Daily Structure

Government guidance is that students should do 4-5 hours per day.


Students should follow their timetable.


It is essential that students do not get overwhelmed, and should participate in the learning and then move on to the next virtual lesson.


A range of dynamic and engaging work is being created by your teachers for each lesson, in many cases the work will become live according to your timetable. 


You can message your teachers via classcharts.


The work is being set on Classcharts, with much of the interactive assignments coming through Google Classroom.

Also, there will be some "Live lessons" delivered via Microsoft Teams, students will receive an invite via their school email. 


If you are not sure how to access any of these please see the support videos below.
